What We Do
Kidney disease is a severe condition affecting millions of people worldwide. It can lead to kidney failure if left untreated, requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant for the patient to survive. That is why at Mississippi Kidney Foundation, we strive to provide individuals with kidney disease support through our programs, services, and events.
Founded in 1965, Mississippi Kidney Foundation set out with a mission to provide Mississippi’s kidney patients with quality programs and services aimed at improving their health and well-being. We are a non-governmental and nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing kidney disease and raising awareness about the contributing diseases and factors leading to diagnosis.
Our vision is to help provide equitable solutions to the renal crisis in Mississippi in areas of transportation, food security, and public health.
Our values stay centered on our work by making a difference within the dialysis community by ensuring we service with concern, compassion & results.
As the number of Mississippi kidney patients increases, the Mississippi Kidney Foundation must diligently search for ways and means to provide financial and emotional support for these patients. With the support of our community partners and our wonderful volunteers, we are able to maintain ongoing, active programs and services tailored to meet the specialized needs of kidney patients and those at increased risk of kidney failure. Every dollar continues to be carefully spent where it can provide the maximum amount of support to those who call on us for help and hope.
